Nylatron® / Nylon

Nylon
Polyamide

Nylatron® is a solid choice for many applications in a wide variety of industries, from industrial to food and beverage, construction, pulp and paper, wood processing and forestry.

Nylon type 6 has a water absorption rate of 7%, which can result in dimensional changes of up to 2%, and a corresponding reduction in physical properties. By using proper design techniques, engineers can frequently compensate for this factor.

Typical applications for Nylatron® include heavy duty bearings, rollers, wear pads, gears, nozzles, pulleys and more.

Nylatron® offers the following benefits:

  • Wide range of grades with characteristics geared to fit your specific application
  • High-grade strength and toughness
  • Low co-efficient of friction and inherent machinability
  • Ideally suited to bearing and wear applications
